Niche firm Family Law Partners has announced its expansion into Surrey with the arrival of Julian McEvoy, a leading family law solicitor, collaborative lawyer and mediator.
A highly respected specialist in family law, Julian is the latest addition to the growing team. He will be the firm’s leading expert in Surrey, advising clients in Guilford, Woking, Cranleigh, Godalming and the surrounding areas.
Julian has practised in the Guildford and Surrey area since the mid-80s, and was one of the earliest members of Resolution. He practiced with several Guildford firms over the years before running his own niche practice, Delano McEvoy. He joins Family Law Partners from a local firm where he was a leading figure in its family department.
Since launching in 2011, Family Law Partners has solidified its reputation as a leading family firm in the south. The expansion into Surrey is part of the firm’s strategy to roll out its own unique approach to family law further across the region. In 2016 the firm welcomed Hazel Manktelow, who leads the firm’s presence in Hampshire, with further expansion planned for 2017.
Robert Williams, director at Family Law Partners, said: ‘Julian’s arrival is a fantastic way for us to begin the new year. Our success as a firm is down to the talent and approach of our dedicated team and we are delighted to have attracted a family lawyer of Julian’s calibre. We have exciting and ambitious plans for 2017 and our move into Surrey is just the beginning.’
Julian said: ‘I am incredibly pleased to be joining the Family Law Partners’ team at what is an exciting time for the firm, as well as for the family law profession. I share Family Law Partners’ vision that there is an alternative path to the traditional law firm model, and one which better serves the needs of our clients.
‘I’m looking forward to working in a different way myself, and using this freedom to help my clients use alternative methods to resolving their family issues.’
